Hastings Law Journal


The Supreme Court in Albemarle held that the company's employee testing practices violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In its decision, the Court gave great deference to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures. The author argues that the effect of the decision is to mandate strict compliance with the guidelines' specific and complex procedures on test validation. In so mandating, the author contends, the Court has signaled an end to the use of employee testing as an aid in hiring and promotion decisions.
